Overview of Enneagram Six

Type Six is committed, responsible, apprehensive, and skeptical. We are drawn to Type 6s because they are loyal, honest, reliable, and organize their thoughts and actions around what is most advantageous for the common good. They have a desire to have security and support.

Type 6s are the glue that hold together every organization and community. They are often more than willing to be in the second position rather than the leader, even though they are fully capable of leading.

They have a strong desire for certainty and for the world to be predictable. As a result, they ask a lot of questions to figure out for what they are responsible, which can sometimes feel overwhelming to those on the other end of the questions.
